Director Daniel Fuqua’s career took off in the 1990s thanks to music videos that highlighted his stylish eye and innovative techniques.

He used those talents to great effect in 2001‘s Training Day, but his career in film has been a bit of a quality roller coaster since then. Films like Tears of the Sun, King Arthur, Shooter and Olympus Have Fallen were decent little actioners, but no one would threaten those films with the term “high cinema.”

Fuqua has been at his best as a director when he’s worked with star Denzel Washington. And just as they did with the aforementioned Training Day and the first Equalizer film in 2014, Fuqua and Washington have created a very good, tense and actionpacked thriller in The Equalizer II.
